S’mores Cookies

Yesterday was busy with swimming, BBQing, and relaxing. My Laundry Monday turned into Laundry Tuesday topped with an additional load of damp swimming towels. Being the good parents we are we counted swimming as baths for the kids and sent them to bed smelling of sunblock.

Then as I snuggled on the couch to write a post about these cookies I brought to our BBQ I just…could not…keep…my eyes…open. *Snooze*

These S’mores Cookies are a perfect hello to summer. I’ve seen these floating around the web and you know how much I loved these S’mores Bars so I had to give ‘em a try.

These cookies have a graham cracker base with a chocolate chip cookie sprinkled with chocolate and marshmallows topping it. The crunch of the graham cracker with the gooey cookie is the perfect combination.

Place tablespoons of dough on each graham cracker square.
Here there are almost done…not quite all the way melted yet.

S’mores Cookies

Yield: 3 dozen

Ingredients

  • 11 Tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 cup brown sugar, packed
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon sea salt
  • (optional) 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 2 ½ cups flour
  • 1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 cup mini marshmallows
  • 3 regular sized Hershey’s bars, broken into pieces
  • 1-2 packages graham crackers, broken into squares

Instructions

  1. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, sea salt and cinnamon to combine. Set aside.
  2. In the bowl of an electric mixer, cream butter with white and brown sugar until light and fluffy. Add the eggs and vanilla and mix until combined.
  3. Add the flour mixture to the butter mixer and combine on low speed.
  4. Fold in the chocolate chips and marshmallows. Chill dough in refrigerator for 1 hour to overnight (I did one batch right away and another after chilling overnight and found there was no difference.)
  5. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Line baking pans with parchment paper. I used one 11x17 pan and one 9x13 pan but you can really use any sized pans you want.
  6. Lay out graham crackers side by side on the pans as close as possible (they should be touching). I used 16 graham cracker squares on one pan and 10 squares on another. You may have to add or remove graham crackers according to how much dough you have. If you want your cookies thicker you will use more dough and less graham crackers.
  7. Place tablespoons of dough on graham crackers about 1 – 1 ½ inches apart. I averaged about 1 1/2 tablespoons of dough per graham cracker square as seen in the picture above. Press down slightly with fingertips.
  8. Bake for 5 minutes then remove from oven to press Hershey’s bar pieces on to the top. You can place as many pieces or as little as you want depending how much chocolate flavor you want.
  9. Bake for an additional 5 – 7 minutes or more if your cookies are thicker. They will be done when the edges begin to turn golden brown. Remove to a wire rack to cool. For clean cutting make sure cookies are completely cool and cut with a sharp knife.

  2. Um, perfection. I can’t get enough s’mores in my life. Now I will think about these until I make them! Yum.

  3. You are killing me. I made your oreo pudding cookies twice this weekend. Now these will need to be made. Love your recipes even if you are keeping me one step farther from my bikini.

  4. These sound like a perfect lake Powell treat!

  5. ooooo.. i have to try this! never thought to put cookie dough over a graham cracker but it makes so much sense now

  6. these look perfect!! wow :D

  7. AMAZING! Love these.

  8. OK sure, I’ll take these to my next social function. and we go to the pool every night after dinner to bathe our kids in the summer time… especially after spending all day at Grandmas in her sand vollyball court. The kids love it….Sand packed in the hair, not my favorite.

  9. Mmmm! Yummy! :D

  10. These look perfect!!! love the little candy bar on the cookie. Can’t wait to try these.

  11. Your cookies look incredibly dangerous!

  12. Positively sinful!.. Can’t wait to try them! (0; Thanks for sharing the recipe! ~tina

  13. Mm I enjoy the graham cracker crust, sounds great!

  14. The chlorine totally rids the kids of all germs, so you’re good. I love that you made these kind of in bar form, on my list to make this summer!

  15. Nothin’ beats a smore! Add a chocolate chip cookie and I am in heaven.

  16. oh, these look so good!! I love that they are ON the graham crackers..so original!

  17. Oh Dear, you ladies are killing me with your smores!! I’m in love.. :)

  18. And just when I thought I was over the smores craze. I’m going to have to try these ones now for sure. Love the graham cracker base.

  19. Those are such a great idea! I cannot wait to try this recipe.

  20. These are so clever! I like that there’s a graham cracker as the base.

  21. These are in the oven right now, I’ll let you know how they turn out, but the dough was fabulous by itself!!!! :)

  22. LOL to your awesome parenting!! It’s raining here, so maybe I can send mine to play outside with bubbles! These cookies look amazing. Now all I need are some graham crackers and I’m set.

  23. Marshmallows, chocolate, cookie…what is there not to love?!

    Since I have never been camping, nor do I live in the USA, I have never tried a S’more. The cookie looks like a good alternative!

  24. Great idea! I love how the graham cracker is actually the base the the dough ends up sitting on…so easy, and not as messy as the real thing!

  25. Just tried with the mix ch. chip cookie dough and it was a bit of a disaster. Will try the original directions next time!

  26. After major success with the oreo pudding cookies (AMAZING!), I tried these. Batter was delish! But, my graham crackers got burnt on the bottom and the flavor ruined the whole cookie. :c( HELP?

  27. @Kristin,
    Oh no, I guess I should have tried that but I totally thought it would work!

    @Anonymous,
    Did you use parchment paper? and make sure that your cookie sheet wasn’t too low to the bottom of the oven? So sorry!

  28. I made these with the cookie dough straight from the grocery store. They turned out perfect!! :)

  29. omg yum!! everything you make looks so scrumptious!

    http://www.cupcakesomg.blogspot.com

  30. I feel like I can’t make these fast enough! First time to your blog, loving it!

  31. Best cookie dough I’ve ever tasted. No need to bake them.

  32. I made these yesterday for a playdate. When I brought them out I told everyone that it was the first time I’d ever made them so if they didn’t like them, don’t worry, they wouldn’t offend me. One little boy (about 6) tasted one and said to me, “This is the first time you’ve ever made them? You should make them 100 times. They’re DELICIOUS!” Then, his 3-year-old brother asked if I’d make them for his birthday. :)
    Thanks for the great recipe!

  33. Oh my gosh! I have been a follower for a while! I am loving this recipe. You make the yummiest stuff! I would love it if you stopped by and became my newest follower if you like what you see! Have a great day…and I will keep looking forward to your awesome recipes!

  34. I made these yesterday for the 4th and they were the HIT dessert of the party!!!!! These are amazing!!!!!! Thanks so much!

  35. Wonderful receipe!

  36. Tried these the other day while babysitting. Not only did we have a blast making and baking these bad boys, but they turned out to be HEAVENLY. I told my boyfriend that I would save him a few, but I honestly don’t think they’ll make it past myself, my mom, or my brother! I’ll surely be making another batch of them soon! Love them!

  37. I tried the recipe today, and they turned out great! I only baked them for 10 minutes, and they’re still quite gooey and soft inside. Definitely a keeper!

  38. I just found your website thanks to mylitter.com and I am SO glad I did. Everything I read sounds not only amazingly delicious but is kid oriented too! I will be cooking everything yours this week. :) thanks for the kitchen inspiration!

  39. Yum! These look great :) I did something simple but with a super quick short cut :)

    Check it out and let me know what you think! http://abestable.com/2011/07/29/who-wants-s%e2%80%99more/

    <3 xoxo Angie

  40. the idea of putting the cookies ON grahams is genius! these look amazing…drool…

  41. I’ve made these twice this week. Had to get the timing adjusted for my oven. First batch was a tiny bit overdone, but the second batch was AMAZING! Had ladies over last night to watch Project Runway and it was hard to hear the show over the oohs, aaaahs and yums. :) Taking the remainder to work today. Thanks for the super easy recipe.

  42. Way better than actual smores! If you are a peanut butter lover try them with reeeses!

  43. At the last minute, I made these for a baby shower today, and they were such a hit! Thanks for the recipe!

  44. these. look. amazing.

  45. I’ve made them for a few functions now, and everyone who tries them loves them. Thanks so much for making me look like the queen of cookies!

  46. I just made these for my daughter’s class, who are having a mock campfire in class tomorrow. They are delicious!! I cheated and used Pillsbury chocolate chip cookie dough in the jumbo tubes but they came out great!!

  47. One word – addictive. These really are addictive. I mean, who doesn’t love s’mores?! These are the perfect combination of a messy s’more in a neat cookie!

  48. how many cookies does this recipe make?

  49. I tried these and they were very good. I also overcooked my grahams a bit which resulted in a super crispy, burnt taste. HOWEVER, the next day they were GREAT!!! I think I ate all of the leftovers by myself.

  50. This comment has been removed by the author.

  51. Came across these on Pinterest and decided to give them a try as a potential candidate for a holiday cookie exchange I’m doing with friends. Wow, they are SO good!! I added extra marshmallows (when I added the chocolate) because I am a marshmallow fiend, and I can’t seem to stop myself from drifting back to the kitchen for one more…and one more after that. :-)

  52. I’m making these right now and have had to bake these much longer than the 5 to 7 minutes after I put the hershey’s square on it. The cookie part is still gooey.. haaaaalp.

  53. These are dee-lish. I used for inspiration for my winter tailgating party – http://blog.inspirationbug.com/2011/12/26/party-winter-tailgating-party/ Thanks for sharing!

  54. These cookies were amazing!! Served them at a party yesterday and everyone asked me for the recipe. I will definitely make these again and again. Like another commenter, I had to cook a little longer than 5-7 minutes after adding the Hershey bars, but they came out great.

  55. I’m making these right now for my kids school bake sale tomorrow and they are standing at the oven waiting for them to come out! The smell is amazing!! Thanks for sharing :)

  56. these were amazing! my friends and I made them for a counseling class about addictions. I have a feeling there will be a new addiction to discuss! Also, I used crisco because I was out of butter and they turned out perfect!

  57. Looks amazing I would bake these!

  58. I baked the first batch at 375 but the grahams were a little too done and the cookie not quite finished. I turned it to 350 for the second round and it worked much better. These are delicious! I will definitely make them again but probably sans the cinnamon.

  59. These look great! I gave a link below for a recipe that’s a lot like this, but the graham cracker is crumbled. I have not tried either recipes but both sound AMAZING! Couldn’t resist sharing the other recipe I found. Share your comments about below cookies if you try them. I don’t know who the people are, I’m NOT promoting or anything.

  60. These were amazing, everybody loved them. :)

  61. These cookies are amazing! Taste better than what they look which they already look good. I made 34 HUGE cookie on 350 like another review suggested. Needs to bake more then 5-7 minutes after putting choco bar on top. Will make again, thank you!

  62. These look amazing. Is that a 1/2 cup of choc chips or 1 and 1/2?

  63. @Anonymous,
    It’s just 1/2 cup of chocolate chips. There aren’t a lot since we are putting more chocolate on top with the Hershey bars.

  64. I loved these! Definitely one of my favoritest cookies of all time!

  65. Wow. This looks nice. My 9 year old granddaughter wants to cook this summer and since I babysit, I’m letting her. I already pinned this and printed it out twice! Thanks. Linda

  66. I made these twice and the first time was good with cinnamon graham crackers from Aldi and the second time with name brand honey graham crackers! The first ones with Aldi crackers was way better, the second time the cookie dough didn’t cook through and they looked done but were way under cooked for my taste!!

  67. Just took these out of the oven!
    Look and smell amazing!!!
    Can’t wait to try them, thanks for the great recipe!:)

  68. It tastes so damn good!!

  69. i like to this post. i try to make this. i have also a recipe web site. this very useful for me

  70. Genius!!! Cannot wait to try these!

  71. Fantastic s’mores cookies. I just made them for the first time and the boys (including my husband) are SOOOO happy!

  72. I discover your blog with pleasure, it’s a treat !!

  73. They were really good. We just got done making these and they were delightful. The batter is almost as good as the finished product!

  74. Oh. My. Goodness! I just found your recipe today on Pinterest and had to make them right away. I had everything in my pantry for s’mores already so it was just ridiculous not to! I will totally be making these to take to a friends Halloween party in a couple weeks. Thanks for the inspiration!!

  75. I’ve made these twice now and they are delicious!! They are destined to become a family favorite.

  76. This is the first time I’ve made them and these are delicious! I especially love the flavor the cinnamon adds. I had to adjust the cooking time since they did take a bit longer than 5-7 minutes the second time.

  77. I got this recipe from Pinterest last month and I’ve made it a few times since. A hit every time – not a crumb left! The fridge tip only makes it a bit less gooey while spooning onto the grahm crackers – not really needed. I also find that I need to throw in an additional handful of marshmallows.

    • Making these today! Cannot wait for the timer to go off!

      I think chilling the dough in the fridge also allows the dough to “relax”, giving the cookie a better texture.

  78. I love this.

  79. They are in the oven now and look soo sinful! Will for sure become a family favorite.

  80. How many does this serve? I have a cookie swap coming up and thought theses might be a hit.

  81. Where is the recipe?

  82. These cookies are amazing! I made them a few weeks ago and tu got rave reviews! Came back to look at the recipe to make again for Christmas and the recipe itself seems to have disappeared. Help!

  83. I had planned on making these for a Christmas cookie exchange tonight and cannot find the recipe now…PLEASE re-post it!

  84. Me too – I had planned on making these for a cookie exchange today and got all of the ingredients for the recipe last week, but now can’t find the recipe. Please, please repost!!!! :)

  85. Can’t see the Smore cookie recipe anymore, where did it go? :(

  86. These look awesome.

  87. Awesome!

  88. I would love to make these however I can’t see the recipe anywhere on this page. Help please dying to try the recipe

  89. Do the marshallows harden after the cookie cools? Do they need to be eaten right away?

    • I made these for a cookie competition. They taste amazing!! Out of 25 teams- we got 2nd place!! Marcia- no. Mine chilled in a fridge over night after they were all cooked and done. The marshmallows were really good!!

    • They do not harden and they do not need to be eaten right away.

  90. They are good but I feel like the graham cracker on the bottom prevents the cookie from fully cooking. Did anyone else have this problem? And if so how do I resolve it?

  91. Can I use the cookie dough already made up…you buy in the store?

  92. i am so much in love with this recipe– i’ve been making this almost every week for the past 2 months!! lol. i just posted it on my blog but definitely linked your site to share with everyone!

  93. Love the chocolate pieces on top nut just in the batter. Theses cookies looks like the best feel-good-cookies for cold winter days ever!

    Cheers, Bachl!

  94. Wowww… these. Look. Phenomenal!!! Can’t wait to try. My mouth is watering!!

  95. I’ve made these 4 times now and they are divine. I love them and wish I could eat them everyday. I added some extra marshmallows to dough and a couple on top for looks and worked great.

  96. Made these today 5/2/13 very easy and good. Instructions are right on.. I did not chill mine and they turned out good.

  97. Hi Chrissy! I really want to make these for my son’s birthday party this weekend and I am wondering how far in advance I can make these sweet little beauties (and what is the proper way to store them)! And maybe while i’m asking (if you don’t mind answering), how far in advance can I make the caramel apple cheesecake bars (and what is the proper way to store them till servng?! I am just loving your blog. My only regret is that I didn’t find it sooner. Kind regards to your and your family! Alicia :)

    • Christy {The Girl Who Ate Everything} says:

      Alicia,
      I would say that you could make the s’mores cookies the day before. In Florida, graham crackers get soggy after a day from the humidity here but I imagine they would be fine anywhere else stored in an airtight container.
      The caramel apple cheesecake bars can be made at least 2 days in advance. Cheesecake gets better over time I think. Store them in the fridge covered well so they don’t taste like your fridge! Haha! Good luck and welcome!

  98. Make these now!
    I made these for a BBQ yesterday and they were a huge hit. HUGE. One guest ate 4 and took 2 home. I used dark chocolate chips because that is all I had. I also sprinkled about 1/4-1/3 cup additional marshmallows over the top after I added the Hershey’s pieces. I think this made it taste and look more s’mores-ish. My batch made 36 squares. I was able to fit 2 dozen into a standard half sheet pan and the remaining dozen easily fit into a 15″ jelly roll pan. Next time I may cut the squares into halves to stretch the recipe. So good! Thank you for this keeper of a recipe!!!!!

  99. I was wondering where to get them already made they look very good and tastey.

  100. We made these last night and LOVED them. After I finished a large cookie sheet, I crumbled up the last few graham crackers, added them to the leftover dough, and baked them as regular cookies. They were yummy, too, but we preferred the bar cookies. We lowered the temp to 350 and baked quite a bit longer, until the cookies were slightly golden on the top. Thank you for this great recipe!

  101. I used parchment paper and turned the oven down to 325 and the graham crackers burnt and ruin the entire batch. Skip the graham crackers, they just burn and they’re totally unnecessary.

    • Christy {The Girl Who Ate Everything} says:

      Oh man! Sorry about that. It helps if you try to cover the entire cookie with the cookie dough so that it doesn’t burn.

  102. I can’t wait to try this recipe! I was hoping to make a batch to take to 2 different events (a week apart). Have you by any chance tried freezing them? I am wondering if they still taste yummy after being frozen???

    • Christy {The Girl Who Ate Everything} says:

      Julie,
      Ahh! I’ve never tried freezing them. I think it should be okay.

      • Has anyone tried freezing them since this post? I need to make desserts for a Dessert Wedding Reception but have to do it ahead of time and freeze so I need items that can be frozen. Christy, which recipes have you tried freezing? Thank you so much! We think we will have between 130-150 people at this reception. I want to make lemon bars but haven’t tried freezing them either, have you?

  103. i just made these today for July 4th! these cookies are out of this world amazing!!! super easy! LOVE them!!!!

  104. Is there a faster way for the Hershey’s to harden faster. Whenever I try to cut the cookies, the Hershey’s just make a huge mess.

    P.S I’ve made these cookies about a billion times! Love them!

  105. Yummm! I will be trying these soon!

  106. I have the dough in the fridge! So excited! I love summer!

  107. I love these. Like really LOVE them. Personally, I think they are much better the next day. I just made a double batch, with my 1.5 TB cookie scoop and ended up with 86 cookies. I top each with half of a fun size Hershey bar – which is just right for me! Thanks.

  108. Hello! I am out of parchment paper, can I directly place the Grahams on the pan or should I use aluminum foil? Thanks!!

  109. I made these today and they came out pretty good. I would use more marshmallows and not use the cinnamon,

  110. How was your Labor Day weekened girl? These look sooo tasty!

  111. Just made these. They came out great but I think the next time I will add a little mini marshmallows. I ended up with 44 of them! Yummy!!! thanks for the recipe, I’ll be trying other things on your site!

  112. Just made these. They came out great but I think the next time I will add a little mini marshmallows. I ended up with 44 of them! Yummy!!! thanks for the recipe, I’ll be trying other things on your site!

  113. I made these cookies today. Mine do not look like yours.Some of the dough never spread to the end of the Graham cracked. That’s okay though as taste is more important. Waiting for them to cool now. Looking forward to trying one.

  114. oh my goodness! these were the best cookies ever!!! when i gave them to my firends they demanded for the recipe!

  115. I tried these, and they are very tasty, although next time I may make them without cinnamon. I did, however, have an issue with them not baking all the way through on the bottom.

  116. Sounds simply delicious–but do you have any ideas on making these eggless? Marshmallows are fine, but I generally don’t use eggs in my cooking!!

  117. These are DELICIOUS!!! I made these for my sisters 9th bday, she has a very large sweet tooth! They were gone very quickly!

  118. These are great in theory, but the recipe needs some updating. It calls for entirely too much flour. I followed the recipe exactly and the cookies were terrible.

    • Christy {The Girl Who Ate Everything} says:

      @Emily,
      I’m sorry! 2 1/2 cups is pretty standard for cookies. Did your dough look like the dough in the pictures? I’ve made these a lot and have always had rave reviews.

  119. This is such a great idea!!! S’mores are my son’s favorite!! I cnt wait to try this!

  120. These were soooo good, I added more marshmallows and they turned out pretty darn gooey.
    Thank you for sharing this wonderful recipe.
    Can’t eat just one, I had to hide them since they were very addicting.

  121. its mouthwatring…. I’ll surely be making another batch of them soon ,…Love them…

  122. These look soooo good! And so simple to make! S’mores in on-the-go form, love it!!

  123. I tried these and my graham crackers burnt so bad :/ what did I do wrong”

  124. I found this recipe on Pinterest and decided to give it a try (love S’mores). I made a double batch to take to a get together we are going to tomorrow morning. I always take a treat sack of some kind since this a group of people my hubby (retired) used to work with, and so many of them are gentlemen whose wives have passed away and they never get “homemade” goodies anymore. They tell me they only come to the meeting for the yummy treats I bring (lol) I followed the recipe exactly (refrigerated the dough overnite) and used the 1.5 tablespoon “scoop”. I did bake at 350 on a silpat baking mat on a large sheet pan. Mine look just like yours, up to the second baking! When I put them back in they did not spread out and cover the whole graham cracker like yours, but they sure look tasty! I think I will press them out a little more next time I make them, so they cover the graham. Letting them cool as we speak, so I hope they are good and stay “soft”. After all, I have a reputation to live up to … ha, ha. Will let you know the feedback! thanks for a great recipe and an amazing website!

    • Christy {The Girl Who Ate Everything} says:

      Ahh. Hopefully they turned out for you. The spreading usually has to do with how cold or not cold your dough is.

  125. My girls and I made these tonight they was a big hit I used 1/2 tsp of cinnamon because it said optional my husband said he thought I should’ve used 1 tsp. I bake them for 5 minutes then another 6 minutes no problem with burning.

  126. I didn’t think anything could be better than a nice toasty, melty s’more until I discovered s’mores bars!!! These look so delicious – I posted a similar recipe to this last week on my blog. I’m going to have to try your version next! :)

  127. I mad these yesterday and they turned out good but not like yours pictured. I found my dough to be crumbly and the chocolate chips and marshmallows did not stick into it well. I chilled the dough for a couple of hours and it was pretty firm. I made the balls and out them on the graham crackers but they did not spread. Even when placing the chocolate piece on, I pressed them out a little but they did not cover the cracker. I baked them on wax paper and had no trouble with burning or getting off the cookie sheet. I also broke the crackers into individual squares first so I didn’t have to worry about cutting. They taste great. The cinnamon in the cookie batter adds such a great flavor, i always love using it. These still taste good the next day, even though warm is divine. I am also trying freezing them with my food saver. Thanks for another great recipe.

    • Christy {The Girl Who Ate Everything} says:

      Ahh. Tracey I have no idea why your dough was crumbly. It’s important when you measure flour to spoon the flour into the cups and not pack it. Could that have been the problem?

  128. Just wanted to tell you I made these for work on Valentine’s Day (I like to bring sweet treats!), ended up having to make a second batch for the later shift because the first batch vanished in a heartbeat! I ended up giving several people the recipe after they asked. They turned out beautifully, and nothing else I’ve baked has gotten such rave reviews!

  129. Does that say 11 tablespoons of butter?
